Clynelish 1965 Sestante 24 Year Old 'Brick Label'

A stunning lates 1980s bottling by Cadenhead's, produced at Brora distillery whilst it was still known as Clynelish. Part of the rare 'Brick Label' series produced for Italian importers and bottlers Sestante. The series is of particular aesthetic interest, using short cap and bottle style more commonly seen back in the 1960s.

Distilled February 1965, matured in sherry wood and bottled July 1989. The new Clynelish distillery was opened in 1968, with the original site renamed Brora in 1975 before falling silent in 1983.

The Sestante import company was founded in the 1970s by Ernesto Mainardi, and he bottled his first single casks under the name in 1985. Alongside his contemporary, Silvano Samaroli, Mainardi pioneered giving his customers a choice of both standard 40-46% bottlings, and cask strength releases from the same casks. Along with his other brand, Silver Seal, Mainardi's bottlings are incredibly sought after.
